Welcome to the world of Artist Michael Anthony Brown ... where realism and surrealism combine to create lush, historical dreamscapes empowered with cultural images from our ancestral past to inspire our visions of tomorrow. From Michael's hands come people and places of uncommon beauty, spirituality and pride. The colors, textures and passions so abundant in his trailblazing works make Michael one of the most exciting and innovative icon-warriors in the vanguard of African-American renaissance.
A native of Washington, DC Michael is a graduate of what is now the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and Maryland Institute College of Art. His works have been featured in major museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including Manchester, England; Port au Prince Haiti; and Bahia, Brazil.
Just when we think we know the parameters of Michael's art, he astounds us with bronze sculptures that reflect power and freedom while paying tribute to the greatness sleeping in us all.
